Kevin Durant's Contract Plans For Offseason Are Revealed

Warriors more concerned with playing well than taking night off against the Jazz NBA Rumors: Kawhi Leonard To Celtics Trade Will Happen This Summer, Dwyane Wade Predicts

Durant now is playing under the team-friendly two-year, $51 million contract he signed last offseason but he'll reportedly decline the 2018-19 player option his deal contains and pursue an agreement that better reflects his status as one of the sport's premier players.

The 29-year-old then took center stage against the Cleveland Cavaliers whom the Warriors extracted revenge upon from the previous year, winning the series 4-1 to secure a second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons.

After winning his first championship, Durant turned down a $27.7 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent with the intention of re-signing with the Warriors for $10 million less.

The usually formidable Golden State Warriors stumbled their way to the end of the regular season, and Kevin Durant thinks that the team's recent slate of injuries had a big effect on them psychologically.

"[Durant's] gesture of taking less gave us the ability to be very aggressive in pursuing Shaun and Andre".

Utah, the NBA's stingiest defensive team over the last few weeks, was the last team Golden State wanted to face early in the playoffs this year.

This is the update that will add the recently announced "Port-a-Fort" item that could shake things up significantly. Building is a key component of Fortnite , but it's not so easy to do well-especially when the bullets start flying.

"What Kevin did shows who he is, shows what he's about and I think it's clear that that's winning". At the time, I said it was the right decision, but given the draw the Warriors landed on Wednesday, it looks like a downright stroke of genius.

"Financially, obviously, what I wanted to do previous year, it made sense", Durant told the Athletic in March.

He can sign a two-year deal with a 2019-20 player option in which the first-year earnings would be $30 million and the option year worth $31.5 million increasing the salary cap from $101 million (2018-19) to $108 million (2019-20). I'm sure here soon I'll want to sign a long-term deal just to feel stable.

Durant, 29, last month confirmed to reporters he's 100 percent certain to return to the Warriors next season.

They will enter this year's playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference behind the Houston Rockets, and Durant's averaged 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists per night.
